LESSON EXTENSION IDEAS
Wh-Wacky Story –
Choose photo cards that include a person or people. Give each student a photo or divide students into small groups and assign one photo to each group. Have students write or tell a wacky story about the person(s) in the photo by making up crazy answers to some Wh- Questions;
• Who is in the picture?
• What are their names? If there is more than one person in the photo, name everyone.
• What are they doing that is wacky?
• Where are they?
• When is the situation happening?
Students use answers to make up a wacky story. Have students write their stories or dictate the story to the teacher.
Wacky Photoshop –
Gather old magazines with child-friendly pictures of people, animals, places, and everyday items. Give each student a note card or white paper. Have students clip photos from the magazine and glue or “photoshop” their own pictures of people, animals and other items in wacky situations. Older students may use computers to cut and paste pictures and print them (under teacher supervision).
Have each student present his/her wacky photo and have classmates identify the absurdities. Post students’ wacky photos in the classroom. Have students choose one of the photos and write a story using the questions in the Wacky Story activity.
